School of Good Books: Chapter Books that Pair Well with Five in A Row Volume 1

Chapter Books that Pair Well with Five in A Row Volume 1

This year I am hoping to add some more read-aloud time to our homeschool day. Up until now, with toddlers and babies in the room, it has been fairly impossible. But then last semester I discovered that by printing out a few coloring sheets or pulling out the play doh I could distract the toddlers just enough to maybe get a chapter or two in a day. I hope that remains true. I decided to put together a list of chapter books that would pair well with the various picture books in our Five in a…

Hacemos un cuento 2: The very hungry caterpillar - 7 años

En la entrada anterior os puse el cuento "The very hungry caterpillar" hecho por mi hija de 4 años, ahora os voy a poner el hecho por mi hija de casi 7 años, que es más original. Para nosotros este libro es uno de los mejores que hay para niños. Está muy bien en castellano, pero si se quiere fomentar el inglés es uno de los mejores desde mi punto de vista. Y como nos gusta tanto, el libro, lógicamente nos hemos esmerado con la manualidad, y está para mi será de las mejores manualidades que…

We're Going on A Bear Hunt :: Preschool & 1st Grade Activities

We’re Going on A Bear Hunt :: Preschool & 1st Grade Activities

Our second row in this year’s seasonal Five in A Row plan was the wonderfully rhythmic book We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen. We’ve already completed another book with a bear theme; I think the boys believe bears is the focus for the whole school year. Ha! Yet, it was a wonderful read …

Delightful Learning: The Story of Ferdinand {& Scheduling Five in a Row}

The Story of Ferdinand {& Scheduling Five in a Row}

June 20th ~ 24th, 2011 For this row, we listened to The Story of Ferdinand on cd and I never could have pronounced banderilleros without it! This is a fun story about a bull who does not like to fight and likes to smell the flowers under his favorite cork tree instead. We focused on Spain, learned what a peninsula is, wrote our own little story, did the lapbooking activities from HSS to go along with the manual, made another little bag book, had some churros and smelled some flowers of our…
